Creating a World of Wonder: A Behind the Scenes Tour of the Mazza Museum

Session abstract or description: 

(limited to 30 participants - Sign up at registration)

Presenter: Daniel Chudzinski

Meet Mazza Museum Curator Dan Chudzinski as he takes you on a tour of the museum most visitors do not get to experience. Learn more about the Mazza’s database and cataloging practices, as well as engage in a discussion on the creation of site-specific installations and public artworks as a means of immersing viewers in the fantasy of a narrative.

The Mazza Museum on the University of Findlay’s campus is the home of one of the world’s largest collections of original children’s book illustrations. What began with four original pieces in 1982 rapidly grew to over 10,000 works of wonder and imagination, representing a wide variety of media and artistic styles, that take turns to amaze, educate, and entertain audiences from the local to the international children’s literature communities.
